Restoration work on Fair Haven’s Bicentennial Hall, a nationally recognized historic landmark, got an $80,000 boost Monday.
A donation by the borough’s historical society elevates the project from piecemeal to shovel-ready, town officials said.
“It has been advancing in fits and spurts over the years, and now we have a plan in place,” said Mayor Mike Halfacre.
The donation means the building will open to the public in time for Fair Haven’s bicentennial celebration next year.
